high crimes and misdemeanors. the focus, presidential obstruction of justice and abuse of power. rick * as the cdc investigates nearly 400 cases of a mysterious young illness. new york state moves to ban flavored e cigarettes. and raising the age from 18 to 21 years old and to stop what he calls deceptive marketing. >> vaping is better than smoking. technically yes. but so what? smoking is terrible. so i'm not relying or waiting for the federal government. i don't expect them to do anything responsibly, to act responsibly because i have never seen them act responsibly.

they say it plays into the false narrative that democrats want to take everybody's guns away. >> when even this president and mitch mcconnell are at least pretending to be open to reforms, we know we have a moment on our hand. let's make the most of of it and get these things done. reporter: but beto isn't backing down, referencing the shootings in his hometown of el paso, texas. >> i think if we start in a timid, fearful, apologetic way. donald trump and mitch mcconnell pretending to be interested in something that is literally a life or death issue for 40,000 americans. it's simply not enough. >> despite the disagreement on heated topics like gun control. the polls show five democratic
contenders all beating president trump in a general election matchup. rick: a dramatic moment at a bernie sanders town hall in nevada friday as navy vet ranl addressed the presidential candidate about his $139,000 medical bill for treatment of hunting on's disease. >> again, again -- >> i can't do it. [inaudible] rick: he told reports he spoke
to sanders and his wife after the event and sanders said he reached out to a case work. if someone you know is struggling to suicidal thoughts, you can speak to someone at the suicide prevention hotline. you see the number on your screen. 2020 hopeful andrew yang announced he plans on giving 10 families $1,000 a year, paid for with campaign donations. it has caused many to wonder if it's legal. >> we have an army of lawyers who signed off on this. i want to reflect for a moment that if i gave a million dollars to a media company or hired a small army of canvassers no one would blink an eye. but if we give the money to the
people, that's problematic. >> but who is paying the army of lawyers. rick: other presidential candidate are trying to grab headlines by letting pro fansy slide. andrew craft has more. reporter: hearing a presidential curse word seems to be the new norm. especially if you are beto o'rourke. >> the president asking four women of color to go back to their country. tell me [bleep] what that means. >> why do you do it? >> i try to speak as honestly as i can with the language my fellow americans use. >> i sent off a tweet that pissed off the entire country of denmark. >> mitch mcconnell get off your
[bleep] and pass gun reform in the united states senate. >> i can't say that i never used a swear word. >> ', children, i swore on comedy central this week. people should be whoever they are. >> it's not just democrats. president trump has sworn several times at campaign rallies. president trump: the democrats have to decide whether they are going to continue defrauding the public with [bleep] reason we a new political are seeing this language on the campaign trail is because the politics are so much different. it went from pg to pg-13 and sometimes r. >> many voters say it will not change how they tas their ballots. >> you can have other word.
>> most of of us are the people i know swear regularly anyway. so it's like talking to someone you already know. reporter: recent friend show voters can expect to hear a bit more vulgarity on the campaign trail as the election approaches. rick: we'll get insight when and how the president and congress might act on gun control. drive safely.. . with drivewise. it lets you know when you go too fast... ...and brake too hard. with feedback to help you drive safer. giving you the power to actually lower your cost. unfortunately, it can't do anything about that. now that you know the truth... are you in good hands?

we'll see what happens. rick: president trump speak on gun reform talks. he could make a decision as early as this week. i'm rick leventhal and this is "the fox report." congressional democrats are dede manning changes with party leaders make their demand known to the president. nancy pelosi and chuck schumer saying in a statement today, this morning we made it clear to the president that any proposal he endorses that does not include the universal background check legislation will not get the job done. and people who shouldn't have guns will still have access. the senate must pass this bill and the president must sign it. let's bring in a breaking news reporter from the "washington examiner." the president has promised some kind of action and promising some things will never happen.
any clue what we can expect? >> i think it's difficult to predict what will come of the president's proposal in part because he has contradicted himself. if we look at his statements following the el paso and dayton, ohio shootings. he supported the background checks. but then he talked out of the other side of his mouth and said there was a bigger issue with mental health. rick: senator rand paul talked about background checks and talked about laws on the books that weren't being enforced. >> the thing we could do at the federal level. when a felon goes in to buy a gun. 12,000 felons tried to buy a gun and they were caught but we
didn't prosecute them. there are laws on the books that aren't being enforced now. so maybe adding more laws isn't the answer. >> absolutely. i think senator paul makes a good point. but there are other people who believe there are loopholes that need to be closed even among the laws that are in place. >> the president met with democratic senator overmanchin and pat toomey. was the focus there on background checks? is that what they were going over strategizing how to best make it work? >> yes. but two of the main loopholes democrats want closed are the gun show loophole and gun show and online sales. when two private citizens want to exchange a gun for money, a background check doesn't have to
be done. rick: one of the reasons one of the shooters failed the background check but managed to get a gun anyway. >> a man who had been turned down when he applied for a weapon. got it through a private search and was able toll kill 7 people. rick: mccouldn't says he's waiting on the president before he puts anything else on the floor. >> absolutely. senate majority leader mitch mcconnell has ardently withheld from the pressure he has been facing from the other side, specifically citing the president as the reason behind it. rick: beto o'rourke took the lead among the democratic 2020 candidates saying yes we are going to take your ar-15s.
he defended that position this morning. >> i refuse to acknowledge the polling or the fear other nra. that purchased the complicity and silence of members of congress and a weak response to a real tragedy in america. 40,000 gun deaths a year and i'm proposing we do something about it. rick: he's getting pushback from other democrats. >> senator coons condemned roke- condemned beto o'rourke's statements. so what chris coons was saying, this will be played at second amendment rallies in the future. rick: a recent "washington post"
poll found a slight majority support an assault weapons buyback. 44% opposing it. i don't know. democrats, i guess are as closely divided as that poll is. >> the most of fascinating part of this poll. when you dig into the numbers, there were slightly over 1,000 people surveyed in this poll. if this poll wob were to go down party lines. 52% of the people surveyed would be democrats. because the democrats would all say they support it. only 44% of the people surveyed in this policy they lead democrats. that tells me at a minimum 8% of people surveyed in this poll did not identify as leaning towards the dpemcratr krattic -- democratic party still support a
ban on assault weapons. rick: president trump sounding off on a "new york times" story claiming there was another incidents of sexual misconduct involving supreme court justice brett kavanaugh where he allegedly exposed himself at a college party 37 years ago. >> the accusations garnering the ire of the president of the united states. he said brett kavanaugh should start suing people for libel or the justice department should come to his rescue. the lies being told about him are unbelievable. false accusations without recrimination. when does it stop? strong reaction including from a democrat running to replace the president.
kamala harris writing this. i sat through those confirmation hearings. brett kavanaugh lied to the american people and his place on the course it an insult to the pursuit of truth and justice. he must be impeached. it will open old wound for the accused or accuser. but some believe it's a rehash of a phoney story to begin with. >> i think that follows up with the rather shameful circus we saw during the confirmation hearing where they took allegations, they sat on them, they didn't make them public. then they revealed them at the 11th hour. the judiciary committee did what we should have done. we held a hearing. we invited the principle witness
to testify. trying to smear justice kavanaugh by going 30 years back with anonymous sources. reporter: the president is announcing his support for the saudi kingdom in the wake of the attack on the their oil fields. the white house released at light images it says proves the attacks were launched by iran with 19 confirmed strikes coming from the north. no events planned for the president this evening. but with the united nations general assembly coming up in the next couple days, it's a sure bet this week he will be in heavy preparation for that. meantime we have new revelations regarding the massive damage the united states sanctions are inflicting object iran's economy. fox news exclusively obtaining
documents that show the effect of efforts on iran to make concessions with its nuclear program. >> an economic assault tearing through iran's economy. that's what top officials see as a result of american sanctions. according to internal documents obtained exclusively by fox news. >> we think the iranian government's gdp will shrink by 12 to 13%. reporter: 8 of their retirement fund are in the red. potentially hitting 17 million iranians who are senior citizens. they say iran spend tens of billions a year subsidizing critical products like drugs, oil and food. before the sanctions 2.5 billion
a day in oil production. now it's 160,000 barrels. top administration officials say the sanctions will continue. >> secretary pompeo and i have been executing the president's maximum pressure campaign. reporter: the goal? convince iran's leaders to negotiate over it nukes jar program and support for rebelling across the middle east. reporter: the iranian president says he will only meet with president trump if the u.s. lifts economic sanctions. the president has refused. the iranian regime calls the news sanctions campaign economic terrorism.
the u.s. says more sanctions are coming and urgessal highs to step up their pressure. >> we would love our friend and allies to help bring iran to a place where it wants to act hike a normal nation. reporter: the attention now moves to new york and the united nations general assembly later this month where presidents trump and rouhani are expected to attend. rick: another severe storm is churning in the atlantic. tropical storm humberto is expected to become across hurricane by the end of the day. a look at the forecast next. ♪ like a drifter i was-- ♪ born to walk alone! ...barb! you left me hangin' on the high harmony there.
